A Call To Compassion And One Humanity

Last night I watched the new Julie Roberts movie, Leave the World Behind. This is a movie along the lines of apocalyptic movies and yet not. While watching it I kept thinking “this is going someplace but where?” After it ended, I was left with this incomplete, yet dreaded feeling that this is a political? social? religious? commentary on our…

Your Year End Cycle

This time of year, with all the catching up or completion of unfinished projects that needs to take place, life can show you the ways in which you have avoided thinking, feeling, or dealing.

Fluidity And Fortune

About 8 months ago I decided to give myself a gift and take Mondays and Fridays to do the “backroom” things involved in having a business.

The Gifts Of Independence And Choice

In listening to a recording of a commencement speech that Denzel Washington gave, he spoke about his many failures and his many opportunities to give up, in addition to his phenomenal success. We have all had all three. Amazingly, in this time of celebrating independence, and having the ability to make choices, to take risks, to fail, and to then…

A Success Story – Patti

Like most of us, I sometimes question what I am doing. Depending upon the day, my question may be: “Am I reaching all the people I could and, if not, what do I need to do differently?” or on a larger scale: “Should I simply do everything differently to be more “successful?” When your desire is to help make the…
